Hi,

I wanted to know why so many Race Cars have the 12 to 16Volt conversion.
Some say it´s only because they don´t use an alternator.
Some say it´s because the ignition is running better, what I can hardly believe.
etc.

Did anyone ever compare it on a dyno?

Thanks
Franz

So drag cars that don't run an alternator what is needed for this conversion?

I run two 1000 amp 12 volt batteries now. Can you just install two 16 volts?

Yes just swap them out for 16v. I have had good luck with the rock racing batteries. The charger they sell is very high quality and will work on 12v also. I had starting issues with 12v on my 605 and the 16v fixed that. :)
